07:06 pm: Dizzy On the Move
I got money for next week from the ATM and then went to Tony's for Greek Salad and garlic bread (most of which I brought home). When I got home, the mail had the inhaler -- so I would only have been late for one dose if I'd waited instead of visiting the pharmacy Thursday -- plus new beads (Out on a Whim has a limited selection of Czech glass and new seed mixes) and my new glasses. At first, I was a little dizzy every time I moved my head and my left eye still feels bigger. The distance and reading zones are definitely better but I'm fiddling with the LCD monitor to get the best distance for it. I need to put more eyedrops in, too, because my eyes are dry, and that will probably help make the decision, as well. The titanium memory parts are cool!

I've just gone back to my last-year's glasses, after dropping my this-year's and knocking a lens out. I got the old ones out to wear until I could get to the opticians, and the right eye was so much better! The left eye felt like it was being pulled towards my nose, but by the time I got to the opticians' next day, it was going away. I did wear my newer pair home after they fixed them, and I didn't have to tilt them as much to focus on the computer screen, but I tried the old ones again and they were even better. My left eye has adjusted completely by now, and I'm hoping I won't need new glasses in July--I've been needing a new prescription every year for the last ten years after getting my first bifocals thirteen years ago.

So you've got a good backup pair! I've been getting new glasses about every two years since I started with the progressives (I used to wear contacts before and the glasses could go for four or five years that way) but this is the first time I've needed a new pair a year later.

I hope yours last longer this time!
